And you thought low production numbers were a bad thing. They probably could call most of the people impacted over intercom in Normal.

I can say as someone who is experiencing issues with this and logged it with support about a month ago, this is likely just a bad sensor.

I wouldn't consider that a production issue but a typical supplier issue.

Bad sensors happen.

To be clear I dont KNOW that is that case but it seems likely. Needing to replace the entire seat seems counter to my assumption but hey I dont work at Rivian.

I got the notice last night. Is it wrong that my first thought was wondering what they would do with the defective seat and how one might make it an office chair?

While I'm not completely joking, my guess is those seats will go back to vendor.

On the bright side, this fixes my issue with getting the sunscreen stains off of the passenger seat. :)

This was already a known issue in the community, but for a different reason (vehicle staying on because it thought there was an occupant). They had to do the recall because that also meant that airbags would deploy.

Tangential topic, but I thought these materials were supposed to be easy to keep clean? How bad a stain is it? I’m just wondering as after a hike we are usually covered in some form of sunscreen and dirt.

I do wonder if this has had anything to do with the perceived early Q2 delivery slowdown. Hard to say if there truly was a slowdown but it certainly appears that way from what we can see and this might be a partial explanation.

This isn’t just a problem for Rivian employees. I’ll chime in as someone who had their seat replaced well before the recall was issued. The reason for the entire replacement is that the seat is manufactured by Hyundai and as an end item is considered a warranty buy-back from Rivian…therefore they can’t just replace the sensor…they have to replace the entire thing and send it to Hyundai.

My truck which I paid cash for on Monday is sitting in the Bellevue SC. They will not release it to me because it is affected by this recall. They let me know that on Wednesday. I’m more than a little frustrated. .
